First Year Residents

Ade .LacmbouhLacmbouh Ade, MD

Medical school: University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health - Madison, WI
Undergraduate: University of Wisconsin Whitewater - Whitewater, WI

Lacmbouh Ade grew up in Cameroon (West Africa), and came to the United States at age 21. He moved to Wisconsin, where he attended the University of Wisconsin Whitewater for college. After graduating from college, he decided to stay in Wisconsin for medical school at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Even from a very young age, Lacmbouh Ade was very interested in family medicine. This interest is mainly due to the fact that family physicians practice preventative medicine and take on a holistic approach to patient care, as they try to improve the health of their communities. Outside of medicine, Lacmbouh Ade, enjoys biking, playing soccer, and listening to music. He also enjoys getting to meet people and learning about their stories/backgrounds. I am guessing some of you reading this might ask why he decided to come to Appleton for residency. The answer to that question was very simple for him, “It is all about the people”. When he came for interviews, he really liked the people and knowing that Fox Valley Family medicine residency was a strong program was all he needed to make his decision.

She immediately fell in love with the people and the beauty of this state and has decided to stay here in Wisconsin for residency and practice. She plans to practice full-spectrum family medicine with obstetrics in a rural community. Katharine chose the Fox Valley program for its ideal location combined with their dedicated faculty, breadth of procedural training, and robust obstetrical experiences.
